Employment & executive disputes overview
The Employment & executive disputes team at Gatehouse Chambers has a wealth of experience in matters ranging from ‘pure’ employment matters such as unfair dismissal, discrimination, TUPE disputes and whistleblowing claims, to all manner of quasi-employment disputes ranging from worker disputes to injunctive relief sought in respect of team moves (such as the enforcement of restrictive covenants) and allegations relating to the misuse of confidential information.
Gatehouse Chambers’ employment barristers act for both employers and employees and regularly appear in the High Court, in various County Courts and Employment Tribunals around the country and the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT).
Our expertise in commercial dispute resolution means our members are also regularly tasked with working as part of a team to respond to the multi-faceted arena of remuneration and bonus disputes as well as shareholder disputes and allegations of breaches of directors’ duties or in respect of disqualification from office.
